US Colonel Donald Macgregor: “We bombed Iraq on a scale of the second World War, off and on for ten years”


By Garibaldi

The United States has still not confronted the imperialist mass murder and mayhem she caused and inflicted on the once prosperous nation of Iraq.

In a few years most Americans will have forgotten that we even invaded Iraq in 2003 on a pack of lies about “Weapons of Mass Destruction,” just as most of them don’t remember the 1990’s when we regularly bombed Iraq and starved her people through horrific sanctions.

US Col.Donald Macgregor, was the “squadron operations officer who essentially directed the Battle of 73 Easting during the Gulf War.” In an radio interview last month at the Norwich University Sullivan Museum and History Center with Mark Johnson on the occasion of the Colby Military Writers Symposium carried by BookTV, Col. Macgregor nonchalantly states that the US,

“bombed Iraq on a scale of the second World War, off and on for ten years”

That is the period between the First Gulf War in 1991 and the invasion of Iraq in 2003. He makes the comment with little to no emotion, recounting it almost in the manner of an Eichmann, a  low level bureaucrat “just following orders.”

What of the lives destroyed? What about the over 1 million children who lost their lives due to sanctions? An answer comes from a Himmler-esque personage, then US Secretary of State Madeline Albright, who when questioned about whether sanctions were “worth” the deaths of half a million Iraqi children said, “the price, we think the price was worth it,”

During the 90’s, as President Bill Clinton was being impeached for getting a blow job from a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky (she’s out with a book now, “Monica’s Story”), the other top news just so happened to be the four day aerial bombardment of Iraq.

The following CBS news report from the period is quite telling, the first portion covers “Slick Willie’s” impeachment and the second (beginning at 5:32) his bombing campaign of Iraq, an interesting juxtaposition:

Notice the careful propaganda of the CBS reporters: callously describing the deaths of innocent civilians as “collateral damage,” protests, funerals in Iraq and the Muslim world as “orchestrated,” and in a racist manner stating that, “history is written a little differently in this part of the world.”

This is a reminder of how propaganda works, the incestuous relationship between corporate media and the government, how lies are disseminated and the masses easily fooled by corrupt politicians and their media lackeys, and the price that is paid, that we are still paying.

    I think bacteria are more destructive than these Hit-and-run keyboard warriors.
    So I wouldn’t fear people like that idiot

  • Friend of Bosnia

    He is not. He believes what he says, he is just plain evil. Or evil and foolish at the same time, the most destructive kind of people there is. In my eyes they have resigned from the human race. They should not exist.

    Emmm… cool down. You are way oversimplifying. I believe in secular democracy, I am repelled by Christian Reconstructionism, and I have no desire to rape any women at all, let alone Muslim ones.

    Now, Omar Sharif in his prime…

  • Omar_the_Egyptian

    nice try they may both despise each other but they both have the visceral hate of Islam and they have formed an unholy alliance b/c of it. They are both determined to destroy Islam, steal resources and rape Muslim women. They are both equally the spawn of satan.

  • Reynardine

    Don’t confound them. From the inside, I promise you they are diametrically opposed.

    So were the Punic Wars caused by Islam?
    Was the wars of Caser caused by Islam?
    Was the destruction of the Temple of Israel due to Islam?
    Was Alexander the Great a Muslim?

    You know what all these had in common, they were before Islam, now lets take a look of some suffering that did happen after Islam came into the world.

    Were both world wars caused by Islam?
    Did Muslims drop the Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
    Were the Muslims responsible for whipping out the Aztec and Incan Empires?
    Did Islam cause the Titanic to sink?

    and so on

    I can sit here all day and list every single atrocity man has caused but the bad stuff that muslims have done would pale in comparison

    So unless everyone before Islam were Holding hands and singing Kombya, then you are an Idiot who needs to open a book.

    Christianity/Secular Democracy is the single biggest cause of human suffering.

  • golden izanagi sorry what was that I was just reading this story about muslims donating food to the needy.

  • 1DrM

    False and worthless comment from an apologist for terrorism.

  • Rajano

    Jekyll, in the last Presidential election I voted for a third party candidate – unless one of the major parties has a far better candidate I will probably do so again – if I vote at all – which is not a given at this point.

    Islam is the single biggest cause of human suffering.
